The Land Transport Authority (LTA) shared an update about their enforcement operations against errant active mobility users and illegal car modifications.
Here is their statement in full:
“While most were preparing for their Christmas festivities, our enforcement officers pressed on with their operations over the last few days to ensure safety this holiday season.
Their focus was to deter errant active mobility users and illegal car modifications.
Our officers also joined hands with those from other agencies such as SPF, NParks and URA to carry out joint operations, including a major enforcement effort on Christmas Eve.
On LTA’s part, we detected a total of 215 vehicle-related offences (e.g. illegal modifications) and 111 active mobility offences.
These included illegal exhaust modifications, non-compliant window tinting and license plates, as well as riding motorised devices on footpaths.
We impounded 10 devices and 6 vehicles.
As we head into a new year, do be reminded to observe our regulations and guidelines. These have been put in place to ensure everyone’s safety. Do not let irresponsible behaviour mar the festive experience for yourself and others.
Do note that from 1 Jan 2022, a new regulation will also kick in – cycling groups must not exceed the maximum length of 5 bicycles (or ten cyclists when riding two abreast where permitted). Errant on-road cyclists will also face a higher composition fine of $150 with effect from 1 Jan 2022.”
